Owner description: "EVERY STEP A STORY....” It’s our privilege to take you into some of the most beautiful and spectacular areas in the Queenstown and Fiordland region to experience everything from glacial valleys and majestic mountains to beautiful lakes and pristine rainforest. Our friendly, knowledgeable local guides ensure you have the time to enjoy the whole experience nature has provided. We’ve chosen our range of walks for their natural history, scenic beauty, remote locations and varied terrain. We’re proud of our company's reputation for providing friendly, informative and personalised guided walks for small groups, and working to make Guided Walks NZ the most memorable part of your New Zealand experience. Why choose Guided Walks NZ? The answer’s simple – we’re the only guiding company permitted to walk "off track" in the National Park. This means we avoid the crowds and experience a true 'wilderness' walk, letting you see and touch the real New Zealand. Guided Walks since 1868

Usually when one goes to the snow, it's with skiing and snowboarding in mind. So it's a nice change of pace from those adrenaline-filled activities to strap on some state of the art snowshoes and tramp up the mountain instead.

Marcus, Karyn and Peter are very friendly and nice people to deal with and will take you on a rather unique guided walk up the Remarkables where there are no skiiers and no congestion; only you and your group. Particularly recommended to those who like tramping and hiking, this time it's in the snow and you are sure to get some beautiful pictures up there. Thanks Marcus, next time let's go further up!

I was on a package tour so I wasn't sure what to expect from the walk that the agent booked for me and my friends. I had the best time walking the Routeburn with Peter. His expertise in the area and sense of humor definitely made the walk more fun and interesting. The scenery is amazing on its own, but definitely makes a difference to have someone along who has the in-depth knowledge. If I ever go back to NZ for other walks, definitely will be calling on Peter again.

me and other 2 friend went on a day trip with peter on the routeburn track in the middle of June, it was cold but really beautiful, peter was full of interested facts and we took tons of amazing pictures because he took us on a side track on the way back, something we will not be able to do if we were doing this on our own. when i go back to queenstown, i will def call up peter again.

Karen was our terrific guide on a lovely nature walk. It was a perfect pace, in a perfect place, with a knowledgeable and professional guide who introduced us to the trees, flora, and birds that we saw along the way. We had morning tea on a hilltop overlooking Bobs Cove. This was a perfect way to offset our frenetic tour schedule. Would highly recommend this experience. THANK YOU!!! Ruth and Rachel - USA
